Invest in Futures

The Invest in Futures initiative unites the financial services industry with the aim of helping disadvantaged young people become economically active.

Launched in 2005 by Michael Marks CVO, CBE, the initiative has raised £16.5 million for The Prince’s Trust, supporting thousands of young people into jobs, education or training.

The centrepiece of Invest in Futures is the annual gala dinner, supported by leading members of hedge fund communities, senior investment banking executives and high net worth supporters of The Prince’s Trust.

Each year the events have become higher profile and more glamorous. Previous performers include Gary Barlow, Michael McIntyre, Sting and Bryan Adams in venues such as Buckingham Palace, the Natural History Museum, and the Roundhouse. The 2014 event was held in February 2014 at the Savoy hotel, raising an astonishing £1.5 million. For more information on that event, please click here.

Invest in Futures 2015

The 2015 Invest in Futures event will bring together city high flyers at a central London venue with the challenge of raising £1 million in just one night. This will be the 10th anniversary of the initiative and a wonderful opportunity to celebrate everything that has been achieved to date.

For more information about the 2015 event, or to enquire about taking a table, please contact Alissa Holmes at or on 0207 543 7413
